Player News
Cardinals leaning toward starting Tyer Lyons on Sunday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:37 pm ET) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said he is leaning toward starting pitcher Tyler Lyons on Sunday at Pittsburgh, reports MLB.com.

Lyons made his first start of the year during Tuesday's game and he earned a no-decision after allowing three runs over 4 1/3 innings. Matheny added that 'as of right now,' Lyons would likely start Sunday, but plans could change.


Red Sox's Justin Masterson walks six in loss vs. Rays
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:37 pm ET) Red Sox pitcher Justin Masterson couldn't make it out of the fifth inning in Wednesday's loss, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and six walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 5-3 defeat against the Rays.

Masterson (2-1) threw just 49 of his 96 pitches for strikes and has now walked three batters or more in four of his last five games. He gave up a run on a single in the third inning and another on a solo home run in the fourth before watching two more runs score on a bases-loaded single in the fifth, which followed a pair of free passes and ended his night.

Masterson owns a 5.18 ERA and 23:18 K:BB ratio in 33 innings. He's scheduled to face the A's in Oakland Tuesday.


Rays' Alex Colome allows two runs in win vs. Red Sox
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:37 pm ET) Rays pitcher Alex Colome picked up a win Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on four hits in five innings while striking out four in his team's 5-3 victory over the Red Sox.

Colome (2-0) threw 60 pitches in his season debut last week and was able to make it through five innings with 79 pitches on his arm Wednesday before being removed. Both runs allowed came in the third inning, with the first being scored on a double and the second on a sacrifice fly.

Colome owns a 1.80 ERA and 10:0 K:BB ratio in 10 innings. He's scheduled to face the Yankees at home Monday.


Diamondbacks' Gosewisch steals base in three-hit Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:35 pm ET) Diamondbacks catcher Tuffy Gosewisch went 3 for 4 with one RBI, one run scored and one stolen base in his team's 5-1 win over the Rockies in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Gosewisch didn't see action in the early game Wednesday and entered the second game of the doubleheader with just one hit in 14 at-bats over his last five games. The three hits marked a season high and represented just his second multihit performance of the season. Gosewisch has hit .208/.250/.208 in 72 at-bats.


Thumb surgery successful for Astros SS Jed Lowrie
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(10:33 pm ET) Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie said surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb went well, according to MLB.com

Lowrie injured his thumb while sliding into home plate on April 28. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list later that day. He had surgery to repair the ligament on Friday and is still looking at an eight-to-12 week recovery period. 

"I've talked to a couple guys who have [come back from] it and based on what the doctor says, it sounds like three months is a pretty reasonable time frame," Lowrie said. "If it happens sooner than that, great."


Diamondbacks' Goldschmidt homers, steals base Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:32 pm ET) Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt went 2 for 5 with a home run, two RBI and one stolen base in his team's 5-1 win over the Rockies in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Goldschmidt came up hitless in five at-bats in Game 1 of the twin-bill as the teams combined for 20 runs, but he found his way on the scoreboard to help lead his team to a doubleheader sweep Wednesday. The first baseman has hit .340/.431/.610 with seven home runs, 24 RBI and six stolen bases in 100 at-bats.


Blue Jays' Chris Colabello collects four hits in win vs. Yankees
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:28 pm ET) Blue Jays left fielder Chris Colabello went 4 for 4 with a double, one RBI, two runs scored and one stolen base in his team's 5-1 win over the Yankees Wednesday.

Colabello had a nice debut Tuesday, going 2 for 4 with a double, one RBI and one run, and he came through in an even bigger way Wednesday. The outfielder/first baseman delivered excellent production before his promotion, hitting .337/.421/.554 with five home runs and 18 RBI in 83 at-bats with Triple-A Buffalo. If this continues, he could force himself into regular playing time in Toronto.


Astros OF George Springer heads to 7-day DL
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(10:28 pm ET) The Astros have placed outfielder George Springer on the 7-day concussion disabled list, the team announced Wednesday night. 

Springer crashed into the wall in the outfield while making a catch on Tuesday. He was evaluated for a concussion, with Robbie Grossman starting in his place. 

To replace Springer on the roster, the Astros are planning to call up Preston Tucker from Triple-A Fresno.

Tucker is hitting .320 in the minors and has hit 10 home runs and 32 RBI in 25 games played. 


Blue Jays' Russell Martin slugs seventh home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:25 pm ET) Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin went 3 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-1 win over the Yankees Wednesday.

Martin scored a run in the fourth inning and came back to knock his seventh homer of the season over the left-field wall in the sixth. He's homered in three of his last four games and racked up three three-hit performances during his current five-game hitting streak.

Martin closed April with a .197 average; with his recent offensive surge, he owns a .286/.402/.619 line with 18 RBI, 20 runs and two stolen bases in 84 at-bats.


Braves' Mike Foltynewicz earns second straight win Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10:22 pm ET) Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz picked up his second straight win Wednesday despite giving up four earned runs on seven hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 7-5 victory over the Phillies.

Foltynewicz (2-0) allowed just two earned runs in his season debut and looked to be en route to another fine outing Wednesday, as the only run he allowed in the first five innings came on a groundball double play. He ran into trouble in the sixth, opening the inning by giving up a solo home run and putting two more men on base before being removed with one out; both runners would eventually score.

Foltynewicz owns a 5.23 ERA and 9:6 K:BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings. He's on track to square off with the Reds in Cincinnati Tuesday.
